Another book blogger told me about this series. I wasn't sure if I would like it or not. But when I was informed that Lucy Lawrence was actually Jenn McKinlay, I knew I had to give it a try. I've read her cupcake bakery series and loved it. So I thought ok, lets try this series.
I'm so glad I did too. From the get go, you think for sure you know who killed the mayor. Boy was I ever shocked to see that I was wrong the whole time. I love books that are written like that. Ones that make you think one person is guilty when really someone else is responsible for all of it.
The only issue I had with this book was that it kept talking about a secret from Brenna's past. Almost to the point where I was starting to wonder if maybe I had started with the wrong book in the series. But then about three-quarters of the way through the book, you find out what happened. I wish that part maybe had been done a little differently.
So just a heads up on that so you won't be thinking the same thing I did. That you are reading the wrong book.
I do highly recommend this book. It is really truly good. And it's not heavy on the decoupage at all. At times it's more of a setting than a thing. And yes true to form, there is some baking going on as well. But no recipes at the back. Kinda hated that!
Good start to a new cozy series! Just received the 2nd one in series and will read it soon!
Absolutely loved this first book in the series. Very likeable main character, a great group of other characters with a couple quirky ones thrown in for good measure. Quick read. Highly recommend it!
